It covers energy issues such as the production of fusion power power balance the design of a simple fusion reactor and the basic plasma physics issues faced by the developers of fusion power this book is suitable for graduate students and researchers working in applied physics and nuclear engineering. Fusion reactors like nstx use plasma to fuse atoms to make energy plasma displays use small cells of plasma to illuminate images what is fusion light atoms like hydrogen one proton and one neutron can fuse together so tightly that they release energy. The plasma physics and fusion energy section contributes towards the development of fusion energy as a sustainable and environmentally safe energy source our main research activities deal with physical and technical aspects of plasmas particular emphasis is on plasma turbulence the associated transport and fast ion dynamics. In the process the gas becomes ionized forming a plasma if this plasma is held together ie confined long enough then the sheer number of fusion reactions may produce more energy than whats required to heat the gas generating excess energy that can be used for other applications the sun and stars do this with gravity. Replicating fusion which releases boundless energy by fusing atomic nuclei in the state of matter known as plasma could produce clean and virtually limitless power for generating electricity for
